Zoologic

I created video content for Lostwax’s new multimedia dance work, Zoologic. In it, Tessella, a woman trapped in her own self-made cage, meets Heine Hediger, the Swiss specialist in animal behavior in zoos. The stories, both human and animal, provide a piercing look at fight, flight, and living life under surveillance.

Cataloguing Pattern at SPACE

I just completed 2 brand new videos from my First Person series: Black Friday Riot and Afghanistan Fire Fight. In these videos, individuals use compact cameras, helmetcams and camera phones in an unselfconscious attempt to capture what is happening around them. The dizzying images shudder and tear apart as these digital devices struggle to compress and record massive amounts of visual information. When this information is reflected upon itself, a frenetic and complex vision of a World folding and unfolding upon itself is revealed.
